Blanca gave our family an amazing tour over 2 days. It was perfect for our family of 5. As a member of a family who has lived IN the Alhambra for over a century she probably knows more than most guides in Granada.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting you! I hope to see you again soon! Have a nice journey in the rest of destinations. My best wishes for the New Year!!

Best tour to date - even if we hadn't met the queen during the tour. Blanca was great and had tremendous insights both as an historical architect and as a dweller of the Alhambra. Highly recommended.

Tour: Alhambra & Granada city in 2 days!, Granada, Andalucia, Spain
Date: Nov 4/19

WE spent two days and one evening with Blanca. Her English is fluent and her knowledge abounds. She grew up in the Alhambra and is (was) a student of architecture. We would have come home having not covered even half as much as what we did with her, and learned more than what you can read about in books. Also went to see the Granada Cathedral and the Royal Chapel; both gems and not to be missed. If you are able, spend three full days in Granada. Unfortunately our time was limited.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynn. It was a pleasure meeting you. I spent two lovely days with you and I'm happy you've enjoyed your trip. Loads of best wishes from Granada

Date: Oct 27/19

Blanca's tour of the Alhambra was an experience we will never forget. Her presentation, enthusiasm for and knowledge of her subject were outstanding. She was able to weave the history, culture and architectural elements of this magnificent treasure into a story that brought it to life. Her presentation was even more significant because of her architectural/restoration background and the fact that her family was born in the Alhambra and to this day live and work there. It deserves our highest rating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! I also enjoyed the day with you and your curiosity. Enjoy the rest of your trip!!! Be back soon!!! Best wishes

Wow- Blanca was a really good guide! She helped us thru a little problem with our tickets to Alhambra and gave us an excellent tour. We really appreciated the little things she showed us. Of course, she was very thorough during the entire tour. Her english was very good and she was easily understood. Great tour-she is highly recommended. Tom

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tom. It was a pleasure for me to guide you. We spend some lovely hours. Thank you for your kind words. Best wishes from Granada

I was completely satisfied with Blanca and the tour. Prior to the day of the tour, she communicated very clearly by email, so we knew exactly what to expect. During the tour, Blanca was friendly and considerate, thoroughly knowledgeable, a good communicator, and happy to share her knowledge with us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert for your kind words. It was a pleasure spending with you such nice morning. I'm happy you liked the tour. Looking forward to seeing you soon back in Andalusia. Best wishes from Granada.

Blanca offered a fantastic tour of the Alhambra at night. She is a great expert on the history and architecture of the palaces and surroundings. She was delightful to work with. Our group greatly enjoyed the Alhambra, and Blanca's skillful guiding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John for your words. I'm so happy you've enjoyed the Alhambra. I enjoyed myself the group with such nice and inquisitive people. I hope you also enjoy the rest of your stay, Seville and next, Portugal. Have nice days in the Iberian peninsula! We're waiting here if you decide to come back. Best wishes from Granada

Date: Jun 6/19

With Blanca as our guide, our Alhambra tour was rewarding beyond our expectations. Blanca has an comprehensive, in depth knowledge of the Alhambra, an excellent command of English and an attention-grabbing, fascinating style of commentary and explanation. Her love of, and enthusiasm for, Andalusia and Granada in general and the Alhambra in particular, made itself felt and was so genuine that it enabled us to feel as though we ourselves were actually inside the Nasrid palaces at the height of their glory.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jeffrey, thank you so much for your beautiful words. It's true I love Andalusia, Granada and the Alhambra very much, but it's true that with such high educated and cultured people as you, the tour is always a pleasure. It was so nice to meet you and to be able to spend with you those hours. I hope I can see you soon. My best wishes from Granada.

Our guide, Blanca E., was extremely knowledgeable. She spoke English perfectly and was articulate. We truly enjoyed our 5 hour tour of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain with her, our introductory walk up to the Alhambra through the woodland, her personal family history, our lovely break in a secluded courtyard, and most of all her extensive architectural knowledge of the buildings and gardens. I would not hesitate to recommend Blanca as a guide. Very friendly and fun to be with as an extra bonus!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank Jennifer. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Have a great trip around Andalusia. Enjoy. Best wishes from Granada

Blanca was great...worth the extra $ than other guides charge. We spent 5 hours learning about the Alhambra and she brought it to life. The Alhambra is a fascinating place and so much history! Blanca is an architect and brings a different perspective to the tour. Even our non architect friends found it fascinating and very informative. We would highly recommend Blanca!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Brenda for your kind words. It was also a pleasure for me meeting such an inquisitive and interested group. It was so nice meeting you. Hope to see you again in Andalusia! :) Best wishes
